    Left the GOP with the loss of national security as an issue they could differentiate themselves from the Democrats on. There was the little noted part of the 47% series of recorded tapes where Romney talked about trying to take advantage of a foreign policy crisis to make Obama look bad. They thought they had it with Benghazi. Now they are left with an issue that fuels their rabid base but is lost on the rest of the country which after Bush, doesn't care about foreign policy. Fascinating how the public has 2 different views of Hillary's "What difference does it make..." testimony during the Benghazi hearings. Think most of the public looks at it as a tough woman who doesn't suffer bullshit.  The right wing base thinks it was treason. I think it would make a great ad for Democrats to say that we are tired of the GOP's spaghetti against the wall obstruction.
